North Tyneside Sensory Service at Beacon Hill exists to provide the highest quality of educational support for children with hearing and / or vision impairment from diagnosis through to adulthood.
Through our involvement, we aim to maximise the educational potential of children and young people with sensory impairment, providing effective early intervention, ongoing specialist support and the application of appropriate specialist equipment.
We are a team of specialist teachers and support staff who are committed to working with children and young people with hearing and / or vision needs, and their families, to provide a comprehensive teaching, educational, advisory support service. We aim to work in partnership with the NHS , schools and early years settings in order to provide a continuum of specialist sensory support.
Our over-arching objective is to ensure that children with sensory impairments enjoy the same rights and opportunities as their peers, and that all barriers to maximising potential are overcome.
